Parent Academy Workshops
The Parent Academy Workshop is a program sponsored by the Baldwin Union free School District in partnership with the Baldwin Council of PTAs to bring knowledge, awareness, and support to our Baldwin families. Topics range from emotional learning to curriculum information and areas of academic interest. The district implemented this program to empower our parents and caregivers with key information, resources, training as well as guidance for our Baldwin families so they can be more involved in their children’s school. All workshops take place in the evening.
